The upcoming Super Mario Bros. Movie has come under fire from the Sonic the Hedgehog Twitter account. Hollywood has started to finally break the code, which is why video game movies are starting to become more and more common. They have come a long way since 20 years ago, though they still have a ways to go. Many of them are also financially successful. To get there, though, a lot of criticism was necessary. While The Super Mario Bros. Movie looks good, there have been some complaints from fans since Nintendo and Universal started marketing it earlier this week. One of the more amusing criticisms of the movie is that Mario doesn’t seem to have a butt, which leads viewers to make fun of the character’s appearance. However, a different voice joined in.
Mario’s “lower body design” was criticized by the Sonic the Hedgehog film franchise’s official Twitter account, which noted that it couldn’t relate to that kind of issue. Anybody who used the internet in 2019 will undoubtedly recall how hideous Sonic’s design for his initial big-screen adaption was. He had a pretty strange visage that only somewhat resembled the character, perhaps to give the movie a more realistic feel. The producers decided to remake Sonic and make him appear much more like his video game equivalent after it was destroyed. There was an attempt, since many people pointed out that the initial design included his trademark red shoes.
It’s unlikely that mocking Mario’s lack of a posterior will actually persuade Illumination to make any changes to its next animated movie. There isn’t a lot of public indignation regarding Mario’s appearance overall; they might make fun of it or make minor alterations, but aside from that, everything else about him is pretty much as one would anticipate. Chris Pratt’s selection as the Italian plumber caused some confusion among some fans, but it’s a little late to change the casting at this point.
On April 7, 2023, The Super Mario Bros. Movie will be released in theaters. How did you find the movie trailer? Comment below and let us know.
